Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

The surgical gastric band involves placing a band around the top part of the stomach so creating a small pouch and greatly restricting the amount of food that can be stored in the stomach. As the pouch is filled it sends a message to the brain that the stomach is full so reducing the hunger signals. The result is that you are less often hungry, get the full feeling more quickly and it lasts for a longer time. People eat smaller portions and so lose weight over time. Weight loss continues until the target weight is achieved. To be effective it has to be combined with lifestyle changes.

The surgical gastric band is generally reserved for people who have a lot of weight to lose; people with a BMI of 35 or more and is not suitable for everyone. The surgical operation is expensive and has risks and potential side effects:

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Slipped band

  • Obstruction or blockage

  • Reflux or regurgitation

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhoea

  • Difficulty swallowing

The Hypnotic Gastric Band or Hypnotic Mind Band is designed to mimic the effects of a surgical gastric band, so that a person will eat much smaller portions. It creates a different relationship with food. As with the surgical gastric band it requires lifestyle changes in order to be effective. The hypnotic gastric band is far less expensive than the surgical operation and does not carry ther risks and potential side effects. Additionally general success rates for the Hypnotic Gastric Band is around 80% whereas the success rate of the surgical operation is around 70%.

The Gastric Band Hypnotherapy programme is available to clients with a BMI of 30 or more. You can use the calculator below to determine your own BMI. The programme consists of an assessment session plus 5 sessions of hypnotherapy.

Subject to discussion it may be appropriate for some clients with a BMI of less than 30 to have the Hypnotic Gastric Band procedure which may then be purchased as an add on. They must first undertake the assessment session and three sessions of hypnotherapy. The appropriateness of Gastric Band Hypnotherapy will be determined during the third session of hypnotherapy.

Persons seeking help through hypnotherapy for weight loss / to lose weight should first have checked with their doctor to determine if their are any physiological/medical causes for their condition. Even if such a condition is identified hypnotherapy may be a useful complement to other treatments but it is important that such conditions should have been identified and appropriate medical interventions put in place.

Programme for Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

  • Assessment Session: Gastric Band Hypnotherapy involves a number of sessions in preparation for the placing of the Hypnotic Gastric Band as well as a follow on session following the placement of the Mind Band. It is important to address any underlying causes/issues in order to give the procedure the best chance of success. Problems relating to weight may have their origins in habitual behaviour. However, issues around self-esteem, self-image, depression, lack of fulfilling interests, etc, can bring about eating and weight problems. A thorough assessment is therefore essential to determine the factors which are affecting you, to consider current patterns of eating and to devise a programme of hypnotherapy tailored to your individual needs. This session will generally last around 90 mins.

  • Three 1 hour sessions of hypnotherapy follow the assessment session to address underlying causes/issues, reinforce motivations, help change the person's relationship with food, reinforce healthy eating and exercise, create positive eating practices, aid to feel comfortable eating smaller portions, and setting the scene for the placement of the hypnotic gastric band.

  • Hypnotic Gastric Band Session. Generally lasts up to 90 mins. Printed post procedure dietary suggestions will be made available.

  • Follow up session approximately 8 weeks later which may involve adjustment of the hypnotic band if appropriate.

The time span over which the sessions can occur can be decided through discussion.
